The long anticipated iPad HD (once rumored as iPad 3) is going to be unveiled today on Apple’s March 7th event. With the excellent hardware and software updates, like the Retina display and full HD experience, again Apple has successfully made its product, this time the next generation of iPad, attract numerous eyes around the world. However, the iPad HD is not the only tablet in the tablet market people are longing for. Though the Apple iPads are still in the leading position in tablet market share, a variety of strong challengers have quickly grown up to sway the dominant position of iPads. The Kindle Fire is one of these tablets competitors. The just past MWC 2012 had brought several outstanding tablet competitors to iPad HD. More surprisingly, besides the update in hardware, some innovational elements are added in to satisfy customers’ demands, which in certain degree further shorten the difference between smartphones and tablets. Check the following content to know the strong competitive tablets released on MWC 2012 to iPad HD:
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes with a 10.1 inch large display with 1280×800 screen resolution, really suitable for you to watch movies on Galaxy Tab tablets, featuring 1GHz dual-core processor, 1GB RAM and support of Bluetooth 3.0. A 3MP camera is adopted by this tablet, which supports to operate on HSPA+ network connectivity to reach up to 21Mbps downloading speed. The long battery life is one of the advantages of Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, owning 7000mAh battery which tops among various excellent tablet options. Providing both 16GB and 32GB variants for users, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 operates with the Google Android 4.0 OS.
Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
The large 5.3 inch screen display with 1280×800 high screen resolution and dual-core processor Samsung Galaxy Note released last year has been a big surprise. This smartphone has been a popular device for users to watch DVD movies on Galaxy Note, but on this MWC 2012, Samsung released a new tablet named Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1, which makes much more sense than a 5.3-inch one if you intend on using a mobile device for note-taking or creating artwork. And contributing to that are the improvements that the S-Pen, with which the Galaxy Note 10.1 is equipped with, has undergone. The results are better input sensitivity and accuracy, which makes hand-written notes easily readable. And if that is not enough, some Adobe apps, Photoshop Touch being one of them, have been optimized for the S-Pen, which is something that artists and graphic designers are going to be happy to hear.
Huawei MediaPad 10 FHD
Quad-core processor has been the hottest topic in this MWC 2012, while Huawei dropped a big bomb to us with its awesome Ascend D quad superphone and MediaPad 10 FHD tablet. The MediaPad 10 FHD features Huawei’s own 1.5GHz quad-core processor, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 10″ IPS (1920 x 1200) display, HSPA+ 21/42/84Mbps and LTE support, Dolby surround sound, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a 1.3-megapixel front facing camerea, and 2GB of RAM. It is only 8.8mm thin and weighs 598g, which means it should be a burden to carry around. It will be available in the global market Q2 2012.
Acer Iconia Tab A510
The 10.1 inch Acer Iconia Tab A510 is another quad-core processor released on MWC 2012, featuring NVIDIA Tegra3 processor. The screen resolution reaches 1280×800 pixels to deliver clear pictures. Operating on Android 4.0 OS, this tablet also features 1GB RAM and dual cameras. The new processor would save battery greatly for long operation.
ASUS officially introduces its annual highlight Padfone on MWC 2012, which combines tablet with phone, just like the Motorola Webtop. It features an incredible 4.3” smartphone featuring a Super AMOLED qHD display, the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5Ghz dual core processor, Adreno 225 GPU, 1GB RAM, at least 16GB memory expansion, 8MP camera, support of 1080P HD video recording, 1520mAh battery, etc. The Station includes a 10.1 inch large screen with 1280×720 pixels resolution, Android 4.0, 6600mAh battery, etc. Together, this ASUS Padfone tablet produces excellent experience in smartphone and tablet using, like watch HD movies on ASUS Padfone. Two things would influence such kind of mobile devices. One is the user experience. The large screen display should bring more and better user experience for users. The other is price, which would directly influence target clients.
Viewsonic ViewPad 10Pro
Microsoft released Windows 8 Customer Preview version after MWC 2012. During this congress, we were surprised to see the tablet with Windows 8 OS preview version. Viewsonic displayed various tablets in different configurations, display size, and OS. The Viewsonic ViewPad 10Pro adopts Intel Atom (Oak Trail) 1.5GHz processor, 1GB/2GB optional DDR3 Ram, 32GB built-in SSD storage, 10.1 inch IPS multi-touch screen with up to 1280×800 pixels resolution, front camera, WiFi, Bluetooth 2.0 and 3G connection availability.
Sony Tablet P
Sony brought people Tablet P and Tablet S during this MWC, of which Tablet P owns quite unique design, featuring dual screen displays, impressing others to be a handheld gaming machine. Sony Tablet P adopts dual screen displays in 5.5 inch (1024×480 pixels), NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core processor, 1GHz CPU, 1GB RAM and 4GB memory storage, 3080mAh battery, 5MP camera and Android 3.2.1 OS.
ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity 700 Series
Offering both great build quality and specs, the ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity 700 Series immediately became one of our favorite tablets at MWC 2012. ASUS has demonstrated an incredible attention detail as far as outer appearance goes, without forgetting the specs side of things, coming up with an incredible product that we’re definitely looking forward to. Last, but not least, the 700 Series stays true to the Transformer line-up, having a beautiful keyboard dock sold alongside it. Once again, there are more than one reason to get the dock, as it will not only provide you with a full physical QWERTY, netbook-like experience, but will also increase the battery life of your device. The sad part here is that we don’t know yet when the tablet’s coming out, but are having our fingers crossed that its release is not too far away.Google+
